Post Tensioned Concrete is a method of concrete construction utilizing multiple strands of stressed steel tendons (or cables) placed throughout a concrete slab for reinforcement. These tendons offer enhanced structural support that allows concrete to be placed at thinner depths and allows for greater spans between supporting columns or beams.
These tendons are placed in groups, throughout the slab before the concrete is poured. Once the concrete is placed and cured, these tendons are then stressed with a special device to create tension in the slab and support suspended concrete sections. Post-tensioning is utilized in many of today’s concrete structures such as bridges, multi-family apartment buildings, and car parking garages.
Post tension tendons can require repair if they become damaged from corrosion as well as accidental breakage from concrete cutting and coring.
